Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Eighth Annual
Predictive Cancer Biomarkers
Pushing Discovery to Advance Clinical Translation
August 18-19, 2015 | Capital Hilton | Washington, DC

Cancer biomarkers have become an essential component of patient care. With discovery efforts ongoing, the next phase towards translation will involve validation and demonstration of clinical utility. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Eighth Annual Predictive Cancer Biomarkers will focus on the steps needed to manage the new treatment paradigm from treating clinical symptoms to targeting genomic pathways. Focus will be given to the use of circulating tumor material to follow patients peripherally, both with known metastatic disease and post-surgery. Throughout the event, top cancer researchers will present their latest discoveries, case studies, and best practices to decrease late-stage diagnosis and improve patient outcomes.

The meeting will cover a range of topics including:

  • Techniques for discovery and validation
    • Mutation screening
    • Exome sequencing
    • Deep sequencing
    • Whole genome sequencing
    • Gene expression profiling
  • Clinical validation studies
  • Integrating genomic data to inform cancer treatment
  • Assay development and informatics challenges
  • Circulating tumor material to follow patients peripherally
  • The role of liquid biopsy in diagnostics and therapy
  • NGS in the clinic
    • Translation strategies
    • Cost and logistical considerations
    • Case studies
